I've see it over and over, I can't tell you how many times. I always have people come into the studio for a consultation prior to their photo shoot and meet with me and discuss their ideas. During the consultation I go over what we do during a typical session. People are always nervous, they call themselves un-photogenic, ugly and relate how this is going to be a very painful experience for them. I try to relate to them the experience I've seen over and over which is by the end of the session their self confidence and how they see themselves will change after a photography session with me. Here's an image from Patty's recent photography session and a lovely testimonial from her. BTW, this one is straight out of the camera with minimal photoshop! Isn't she beautiful!
Wow! What a transcendent and enlightening experience you gave me. I have to admit I was looking forward to this photo shoot about as much as having teeth pulled. I was telling people I'd rather stick pins in my eyes than have my picture taken. I dragged myself into your studio with no makeup, looking and feeling like a decrepit old battle-ax. But as soon as I walked in the door my mood changed because you're both so warm, friendly, funny and easygoing. I was against having anyone else but me doing my makeup, but you somehow managed to convince me to try it. OMG, what was I thinking? Mei Li transformed me in a way I could never achieve. I want her to come to my house and do my makeup every day! She is amazing in so many ways, sweet and funny and a miracle worker. I was blown away just having my makeup done, but then the photo shoot started. I thought I would be so nervous and stressed that I even brought a little bottle of vodka to try to calm down, and I don't even drink. Luckily I couldn't get the thing open, but I didn't need it anyway. Wayne, you're so entertaining and likable, I felt completely at ease. A totally unexpected adventure. You two are such a perfect team it's captivating to watch how you work together. Mei Li helped with posing and simultaneously checking each photo to interact with Wayne so the pictures turn out perfectly. And they were beautiful, so much more than I'd expected. I want to go back and do it again. I went in there feeling nervous and apprehensive and I left feeling thrilled and ecstatic. Thank you both so much for a life-changing event. I think everyone should try it. It's much more than just a photo shoot. It's a great boost for your self-confidence. I've had my pictures done with other photographers and there's no comparison; you guys are the best. Wayne and Mei Li, you're a fantastic team. -- Patricia Perry
"Wayne Wallace is simply the BEST there is! The shoot was so fun! I was feeling nervous when I first came in the studio the day of my shoot but he made it all go away before we started because he made me feel comfortable in no time. I felt very beautiful, mood was so light, and the ambiance was perfect. It was truly a delight to work with him, he brought out the best in me that day. He is no doubt a master of photography. Thank you so much Wayne!" -Kim
We came out to Vegas for a bachelorette party, and were looking for something to make our trip unique. Wayne had just the thing! We set up a retro pin-up girl photo shoot, and with a little research we came prepared with our props and costumes. We couldn't have done it without Wayne's direction and hilarious comments throughout the shoot. He made us all feel so comfortable, and helped us to "work" the camera. His studio was very accommodating to all of our needs. We all definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fun thing to do with their girlfriends! -- Courtney, the Sailor

Wayne Wallace's talent made the difference between success and failure for my career goals. " -- Emily Bossak
"Wayne Wallace is beyond the word professional. He captured amazing photos of me. He takes his time with you and makes sure everything is perfect for your pictures. Wayne is a very nice person and made me feel very welcome and comfortable during my shoot. Wayne understood exactly what type of photos I needed and he had no problem at all capturing it. He has a very creative eye and is very spontaneous. I am very happy I chose him to do my portfolio. Thank you very much Wayne, I appreciate your help so much! :) I'll definitely be coming back to you when I need some more photos... maybe this time I can do a shot of me being a man haha never know what will sell:)" -Johnna
